Live Healthy Douglas Partner Spotlight

UGA Extension Douglas


Susan Culpepper, County Extension Coordinator at the University of Georgia (UGA) Cooperative Douglas County, was recently honored with the Live Healthy Douglas (LHD) 2019 Partner of the Year Award. The award was announced on December 11th at the Douglas Chamber of Commerce in Douglasville, GA.

The Live Healthy Douglas Partner of the Year Award recognizes a Steering Committee Member who had a major impact on the Live Healthy Douglas Coalition and who has furthered the work of the Douglas Community Health Improvement Plan during 2019.

Ms. Culpepper joined the LHD Steering Committee in 2015. Since then, she has been heavily involved with promoting healthy lifestyles in Douglas County. She serves as the Healthy Lifestyles I-Team Chair and regularly attends each of the Tobacco Product Use, Healthy Eating, and Youth Behavior workgroup meetings. Additionally, in the absence of a Healthy Eating Workgroup co-lead, Ms. Culpepper has stepped in to help with meeting planning and facilitation and has been instrumental in the growth and action planning for this group.

“Ms. Culpepper has been a valued partner within Live Healthy Douglas,” said Dr. Jacqueline Dow, the Membership Chair for LHD. “Her leadership has extended beyond the Steering Committee to support and provide guidance to each of the Healthy Lifestyles workgroups.”
